Well Guys, I wanted to start an official manga discussion thread, to seperate it from the anime discussion. The topics of this thread are manga, reading, and doujins. I wanted to start this thread off with a Bang....
SO I AM GIVING YOU A TREAT
I found the manga we keep using that page of, read it and laughed histerically. I have perused it and the page we post over and over is about the worst it gets in NSFWness.... But it's inuendo is striong. Plus we probly should start with something upbeat, So now presenting the Tskuhime doujin....
This manga is about an emotional and spiritual assault, a journy of the mind, body and soul..... It is also about the relationshp between man and child, and the..... oh fuck, it's a comedy manga, enough of the deep crap, next page....
Ahh we seem to be starting intellegently enough, WAIT... what kind of dreams
Ok there has to be symbolism here.... maybe they will go for a walk, or a hike.... a journy of the sould, both physically and emotionally.....
Well, damn..... maybe her responce will at least be favorable....
That was the first 5 pages.... Now once more THIS IS NOT HENTAI.... I may be a sick bastard but I'm not dumb enough to break forum rules. The full comic is 28 pages, I will post a few every day until we reach the end.
Now let the discussion begin........ also the comentary I provide is a tribute to Alan Bates..... May the inuendo be with you.....

At this rate, I can't wait until tomorrow. <_<

As far as manga goes, there's a few I steadily read.
Excel Saga, Battle Royale, and Video Girl Ai.
I tried reading Trigun, but I hate the art in it. I find it much too hard to follow.
I preferred the Excel anime. It was just more out there and crazy.
Battle Royale is just sick. I mean that in a good way too. There are times I just have to stop reading it and let it sink in what I've actually saw. They keep pulling all sorts of neat and nasty twists out of the blue. Highly recommended for people that aren't easily disgusted or offended.

Health Advisory: Under no circamstances purchase or read the manga known as 'Blame!' While the violence and unholy creatures are all good fun, it is the most creepy and overall depressing piece of work made in human history. Poe meets Lovecraft meets Geiger.

Huzzah! I've been waiting for a manga thread for a long time. I love manga, and read lots of them.
As for this manga, I've never seen it before, so I'm wondering WTF? is this the manga where "a cat is fine too" came from?

So far the only manga I've collected religiously would be Suikoden III: The Successor of Fate. It seems to stick pretty close to the actual game's storyline, plus I think it even has game dialogue thrown in there (Lucia mentions her admiration of Leon Silverberg in the manga and I've read she does the same in the game for example). They've managed to fit in quite a few characters over the 6 volumes I have, which is surprising when you consider how many are in a Suikoden game.
I'm considering looking for the Nadesico, Excel Saga and Hellsing manga. I enjoyed the anime of Hellsing (even if it was left pretty open-ended) and I'd like to compare the other two to their anime counterparts (I've heard Gai gets a much better death in the Nadesico manga as opposed to the anime).

Ok I'll discuss my manga habbits first. I read a LOT of manga.... I read lots of series, and get lots of variety. Not ebntirly by choice though. You see my local book store will carry a series, and I will start reading it, religously... until yhey run out of the next folume, which tends to happen around volume 2 or 3. So, being in a book store with 7 to 15 dollars in my pocket, I pick something else. and read that, until they run out of the nxt volume (but then mysteriously have every volume before and after just to taunt me). and I start anopther series. I have read up to volume 3 of bleach, 2 of FMA, all of trigun, but none of the book stores have volume 2 of maximum, I read up to the end of Volume 3 of hellsing, 3 of Excel Saga, 2 of Eyeshield 21, everything in sailor moon excep the last 2 volumes, I read the first three volumes of Death note before it was licenced via fanscans (I stop looking for fan scans after a series gets licenced until after I have the english released volume to cover my ass, and get every translation perspective I can to get a clearer view of what is actually happening) I also read up to the last volume but not the last volume of Ichigo 100% (I wish they could release it faster but you can't rush quality). I like reading translated Doujins. The Doujin we are reading is of a serise called Tskuhime.here is an anime based on it.
Now without further ado....
Last we saw Our hero was silenced out by the heroine, but we have to ask ourselves, what are his motives, Is it love, is it fate is it...
... oh how noble
ANOTHER WOMAN? I wonder, is it a girl friend, a hooker, an ex love, oh well, we all know, uh..... something.... uh.... conquers all
Well if he is that attracted to her, there is nothing that can stop him...... It doesn't matter who that other girl is unless....
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..... choices choices....
The word wrong has just been redefined...... on SOOOOOOOOOOOO many levels...
Next update tomorrow.... feel free to discuss this or any of your other manga needs
Ou des - November 15, 2005 11:48 PM (GMT)
Luppy... what is the name of that, uh, strangeness?
LuppyLuptonium - November 15, 2005 11:51 PM (GMT)
read the first image, it's the cover....
*owls come flying in circling ou's head*
Newb - November 15, 2005 11:51 PM (GMT)
I, too, am interested, simply so that I may mock it at my leisure, and not because the plot has me interested at all.
LuppyLuptonium - November 15, 2005 11:53 PM (GMT)
*owls circle Newb's head too*
Darth-Tapeworm - November 15, 2005 11:53 PM (GMT)
Most of you I like. Luppy, on the other hand, just scares me.
We must drive the beast back into the hell-pit from once he came before it is too late!
Alan Bates - November 15, 2005 11:54 PM (GMT)
He's still not as bad as Shioji.
Newb - November 15, 2005 11:55 PM (GMT)
curse you baron and your legion of owls!
and uh, I totally read the first post, really.
LuppyLuptonium - November 15, 2005 11:55 PM (GMT)
I scare you? HEY ALAN!!!!!
Newb - November 15, 2005 11:56 PM (GMT)
I say we band together and embark on an epic journey to defeat the baron where we will instead get lost and spend the entire trip getting drunk and refusing to ask for directions
LuppyLuptonium - November 15, 2005 11:58 PM (GMT)
or we could discuss manga
Newb - November 16, 2005 12:01 AM (GMT)
We can't stay on topic for more than five minutes straight, the universe would explode!
Ou des - November 16, 2005 12:03 AM (GMT)
Oh, I thought that was the chapter title or something :sweat:
Blackdeathdraco - November 16, 2005 12:05 AM (GMT)
Atsa nice manga Luppy.
In other news, I started reading Samurai Deeper Kyo and Rurouin Kenshin and liking those.
Newb - November 16, 2005 12:05 AM (GMT)

| Oh, I thought that was the chapter title or something :sweat: |
same here, but I wasn't about to admit it after it had been pointed out unless someone else made that mistake too
Alan Bates - November 16, 2005 12:16 AM (GMT)

I wasn't paying attention. What's going on?
Whatever you heard, I didn't do it! Unless it was good, then I take full credit for it.
Newb - November 16, 2005 12:18 AM (GMT)
we were talking about crabcakes, and I said you have a great recipe that involves rat poison.
Darth-Tapeworm - November 16, 2005 12:20 AM (GMT)
Not crabcakes made with pubic lice?
Oh, and I just noticed that Alan and I seem to have the same avatar.
Newb - November 16, 2005 12:21 AM (GMT)
no, that's just disgusting.
never speak again.
Alan Bates - November 16, 2005 12:23 AM (GMT)

No we don't.
Darth-Tapeworm - November 16, 2005 12:24 AM (GMT)
Umm... ok. Though I am not actually even speaking now.
And, Alan, you gotta notice the resemblance. ;)
Algasir - November 16, 2005 02:59 AM (GMT)
Where did you find this Luppy? You have made me curious...
LuppyLuptonium - November 16, 2005 03:10 AM (GMT)
don't ask my sources, Depending on your age they may be illegal.....
Just Jon - November 16, 2005 03:14 AM (GMT)
What if we're legal all OVER, baby?!
Algasir - November 16, 2005 03:15 AM (GMT)
I'm 18, if that's what you mean...
Unless you mean...yeah.
LuppyLuptonium - November 16, 2005 03:16 AM (GMT)
Then i'll post screenshots from my new favorite game, Polygon Love 2
mordain - November 16, 2005 03:16 AM (GMT)
Link, don't post, and mark it, please.
There *are* underage people on this forum... and I REALLY don't want to see it... >_<
Just Jon - November 16, 2005 03:17 AM (GMT)
Mordy lies, her curiosity grows strong...
mordain - November 16, 2005 03:18 AM (GMT)
LuppyLuptonium - November 16, 2005 03:18 AM (GMT)
liuke I said, unless it's atari screenshots, I will not willingly post porn on the forum
Just Jon - November 16, 2005 03:19 AM (GMT)
..But it should! :P
Lup, pm them to me or something, me wanna see!
Iyestorm - November 16, 2005 03:37 AM (GMT)
Can't you just google for porn like normal people?
Algasir - November 16, 2005 03:41 AM (GMT)
I was too lazy to wait for Luppy to post the rest of the manga he was posting, so I wanted to know where he found it.
femmesimonbelmont - November 16, 2005 06:37 AM (GMT)
Does that have anything to do with that anime based on a H game that got really popular last summer? I can't remember the full name, oh yes I do...
full moon wo sagashite.
Doesn't look the same, though... hmm, oh well...
It's not pornographic, it's just weird...don't really see what the problem is....
as for manga, it's ungodly expensive here, so I don't get to read it much...
I'm currently following fanscans of original Devilman, ultimate!!Hentai Kamen, Elfen Lied,FMA and Eva:Girlfriend of steel 2. Stuff I buy when I have excess cash are Gravitation, Bleach, and Othello.
I'd also be shelling out for Eva:Gos2, Trigun and Hellsing if I could afford it... :S Oh well, soon...
I do so love manga....
that reminds me, since I stopped reading SJ I haven't had a fix in a very long time... I'll have to buy the rest of the yugi-oh manga... (although I won't be so much as glancing at the "duelists" crap.)
